The Austin Air Healthmate was born out of necessity as President, Richard Taylor, undertook the task of improving what many doctors and specialists couldn’t; his wife’s quality of life.
Since his wife, Joyce, was a child, she had difficulty breathing. An endless round of doctors and specialists didn't make any difference; neither did medications or dietary changes. She suffered from this debilitating condition for years, until Richard realized the obvious. The air Joyce was breathing was contaminated.
Drawing upon technology used in medical facilities, Richard reproduced the only environment where Joyce had relief of her symptoms, “the hospital clean room”. Using True Medical HEPA, surrounded with Activated Carbon he created a filter that addressed all the issues related to environmental particulate contamination and chemical toxicity. Within a week Joyce was finally sleeping undisturbed through the night.
Today, at 480,000 square feet Austin has the largest air cleaner manufacturing facility in the world, producing everything in house from filter, to metal forming, to the final paint.
Austin air is extremely proud that the Healthmate is the
air cleaner of choice by leading doctors throughout the United States
and many other parts of the world. As a matter of fact, there is hardly
a country in the world today, where an Austin Air cleaner is not hard
at work cleaning the air in someone's home.
The result is nothing but clean air.
Austin Air cleaners are powder coated not painted. This gives the products an unsurpassed finish without the harmful off gassing that painted products can produce. In fact you will find that the control knob, wheels and fan are the only plastic components we use. This is great news for the chemically sensitive. We feel that a machine that offers relief to allergy and asthma sufferers shouldn't contribute to the problem.
The engineers at Austin Air concentrated on developing the most critical component of the air cleaner first; the filter.
Austin Air’s 360-degree intake system draws air into all sides of the air cleaner, maximizing efficiency and delivering more clean air faster.
Every minute, 250 cubic feet of air is processed by a 4-stage filter that progressively removes contaminants out of the air.
This process enables Austin Air cleaners to:
Austin Air has made a conscious decision to keep Americans employed by keeping their manufacturing facility in the United States. We feel that every company has an obligation to carefully examine the social, economic and moral costs of sending jobs offshore. At Austin Air we believe that American workers still build the best products, that corporations can still make a healthy profit manufacturing in the United States and that the benefits of staying in America far outweigh the costs.
When a company chooses to go offshore to manufacture a product, they are motivated by one thing…greed. As a result, our economy suffers through lost jobs and money, and the American consumer is short changed. The benefits of these corporate cost savings are rarely passed on to the consumer and the product is now of a lesser quality. If this were not true, your running shoes would last 5 times longer and would never cost over $50 a pair. The next time you buy a product made in China, ask yourself, “Why is this costing as much as it did when it was made in the USA and how is this country going to prosper when our own corporations have no loyalty to us?”
After pioneering and leading the air cleaning industry
for more than 15 years, Austin Air maintains the largest air cleaner manufacturing
facility in the world, manufacturing everything in-house. From the filter,
to metal forming, to powdercoating, to final assembly, every Austin Air
cleaner is proudly made in the USA.
Austin Air is proud of the personal attention they give their customers. From the friendly greeting by their receptionist to the risk free purchase of an air cleaner, the customer will always feel their concerns have been addressed.
